      Yup... I swapped out the black Hellcat rims and install Chrome Demon reps.



  2. It was nice to meet you at the Texas Mortorplex yesterday.  I'm sorry I didn't have more time to visit with you.  I retrospect I should have visited with you instead of getting ready for the race, lol!  I caught that Ramcharger guy so early I was pedaling like crazy to stay barely ahead of him and somehow I let him have the strip at the end.  I'm sure you're not impressed with my racing skills and i don't blame you.

    Other than that I hope you had a good time!

  3. What did it do to your 60'?
  4. You have too much HP for that wheel/tire combo. Need to experiment with slicks, at least 10.5" wide tires.
  5. Are you shifting manually or letting the car do it? Lower your shift point until you hit your number. Then keep an eye on the weather and adjust accordingly. Cut a good light and give it a rip or 2 before the stripe if you are way ahead to keep from breaking out.
  6. Does anyone have experience with any of the high energy coil packs that are available? Most of them say that they allow you to gap your plugs much wider. I'm wondering what that will do to low end response. I should also say that this is for a racing only application, so I'm not interested in fuel economy gains or smoother idle or any of that stuff.
  7. Who has one? Did it work ok for you? I ordered one and I didn't realize it was plastic until I opened it. I sent it back. Not worth $99. I just folded up pieces of cardboard and slipped them between the rocker arm and the valve to keep pressure on the pushrods until I could gradually tighten the rocker shaft down. Removed cardboard one at a time when the rocker arm was close enough to keep the pushrod in place. Did a compression test on each cylinder just to make sure before I buttoned it up.
  8. Yes I loosened rebound. We use slo mo video from cell phone camera.
  9. Looking forward to seeing it sometime!
  10. Damn, I never thought I'd see you get rid of the Fat Lady!
  11. Thanks! Have you been back to the track?
  12. Good move by Chrysler. The talk around Houston was MSRP +$20,000. If they let the dealers do that they would get it.
  13. Loosened rear shocks almost all the way down and it stays on the tire enough now to hook on a well prepped track: I'm going to try 2 degrees more pinion angle (downward) next time and see if it will hook when the track is not prepped so good. I don't want to bring the front up any more though, I feel I will be losing E.T. if it comes up any higher.
  14. Worst part was I had to get up Sunday morning at 3:30am and work from 5am-1pm. Then I was REALLY beat! I'm getting to old for that kind of stuff!
  15. At 5pm it was 99 degrees and 50% humidity. At the end of the night it was about 85 and humidity was 70%. We went through a lot of water that night. I won enough $$ to pay for racing through August though, so it was worth it.
